12 Times Celebrity Moms Posed ‘Glam Squad While Momming’ Photos in Social Media

img_6918

Alas, it looks like it now officially a must-do trendy thing for working moms in Hollywood to do: Pose for the official “momming while being serviced by a glam squad” photo.

And…look, Avatar 2 star Zoe Saldana is the latest to join the club!

 

The Guardians of the Galaxy actress posted a photo on her Instagram account of her tending to her infant son, Zen, while getting primped and polished for some red carpet event, perhaps.  “You do what you have to do to be there….  #workingmom” she captioned the photo in both English and her native Spanish.

Before Saldana did it, the likes of Audra McDonald, Molly Sims, Miranda Kerr, P!nk, Terri Seymour, Ali Landry, Alyssa Milano, and Jessie James Decker have all share social media photos of themselves in the throws of dolling up as a working mom in Hollywood.

Gisele Bundchen may have been the unofficial mother  of this genre of photos. When she did it in 2013, the Victoria Secret model she caught a lot of flak for those who said she was being vain and using motherhood to call attention to herself — not just her then-one-year old daughter Vivian Lake.

The Brazilian Supermodel’s famous breastfeeding while getting glam shot was controversial because vanity and “glamity” aren’t supposed to co-exist with motherhood and breastfeeding, socially. Aaaah humbug!





Shameless actress Emily Rossum joined in the fun of criticizing Bundchen by posting a parody of Bundchen’s photos by copying it to a tee using a doll. Okay, Emily. Sure.

But we are able to recognized the value to the image despite what the critics say. In the past, in tinsel town  (and Bollywood) getting pregnant and having a family can disrupt a woman’s career but not so much anymore.

As we’ve shared before, motherhood isn’t halting opportunities and production can and do work around a star’s pregnancy. In recent years, many celebrity parents are showing their social media fans that they don’t let motherhood interfere with their work either. They can do both.

Again, since Bundchen’s photo, other celebrity women like LilyAldridge, Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Kandi Burruss have shared photos of themselves tending to their babies while getting glammed up for an event.

Here are photos of 12 times when

Shot in Head: Would be Robber to Malibu Home of Model Miranda Kerr

What is the deal with major high stakes security breaches these days?

Last Friday morning around 11 am on October 14, an intruder cut a hole in a fence to model Miranda Kerr’s Malibu, California home but was stopped by a security guard. The would-be robber stabbed the guard in the eye during their encounter.

During the scuffle, the guard manged to shoot the intruder several times including once in his head.

Both are receiving treatment in a Los Angeles hospital.  The Los Angeles County Sheriff‘s Department airlifted the security guard from the scene.

There could be something to say about letting the world into your home via media, perhaps as Kim Kardashian West , while in Paris for Paris Fashion Week, of jewelry once featured on her E! television show and flashed in social media.

Earlier this year, Kerr gave an inside look to Harper’s Bazaar into the 1960s style ranch she purchased in 2014 following her split with ex husband Orlando Bloom.

Kerr may not have been in the house at the time as her fiance Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel recently purchased a sprawling Brentwood mansion for the family.

No Shame in Breastfeeding: Ashley Nicole and other Actresses & Models who Social Media shared photos of themselves Nursing

So a couple years ago, R&B singer Eric Benet shared a photo of his wife Manuela Testolini via Instagram, breastfeeding his newborn daughter. He shot the pic because the baby was incidentally holding up her fingers in what looked like a peace sign. Benet didn’t consider the fact that his wife’s breast was exposed at the time.

Well, he got the backlash of his life from people who, apparently, believe breasts should only be shown in social media when squeezed inside teenie tiny bikinis or bursting out the side of an A-lister’s red carpet dress. When shown nourishing a baby it elicits all sorts of queasiness and uneasiness among audiences. 
For too many people,  breasts are sexual and should only be shown or used as sexual objects. The idea of a baby nursing makes them uncomfortable and they simply cannot handle it. 
Take II.
Two years later, it’s 2014 and Miami Dolphins linebacker Philip Wheeler‘s girlfriend model Ashley Nicole decided to take to her Instagram page to share a photo of herself breastfeeding her baby on the run.
“Was on the way out the door but then mommy duty called,” she captioned the above photo “…Everything stops for him! #breastisbest #natureisbeaufitul”
Nice.
Not so fast, you nursing advocates.
In no time, the image went viral and all sorts of folks who apparently grew up learning to be ashamed of something as natural as nursing went to town, cursing out the mom, calling her all sorts of names on her own Instagram page which many of them had never ever before frequented.  Yeah, going all out of their way to leave whatever website they were trolling or stalking to go to this woman’s page and berate her. 
*sigh*
I could blame  sites like TMZ  and  Bossip which posted about the story asking “Is it inappropriate” and certainly siccing their legions of followers on the poor woman.
I hate people sometimes. 
Some said the photo and words were not shared to advocate for breastfeeding but to draw attention to mom who is a Ford model and was well-dressed and in shades. Why stop to get a third person to take a photo for Instagram, if it was just natural and incidental, they ask? Only, she was dressed to go out at the time as she mentioned in the photo and she probably figured while stopping to breastfeed, she might as well share the moment with her followers and promote breastfeeding at the same time. Kill two birds with one stone.
The bullying was so intense Wheeler told TMZ Sport that people should back off .

“”I wish everybody would just leave it alone,” Wheeler said. “She’s a model. She takes pictures for a living.”a

Nicole eventually deleted her Instagram account altogether!

Good grief!
According to the Center for Disease Control, 26% of babies are never breastfed.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics research, human milk-feeding decreases the incidence and/or severity of a wide range of infectious diseases including bacterial meningitis, bacteremia, diarrhea, respiratory tract infection, necrotizing  enterocolitis, otitis media, urinary tract infection, and late-onset sepsis in preterm infants.
In addition, post-neonatal infant mortality rates in the United States are reduced by 21% in breastfed infants.
It should come as no surprise that much of the “hate” came from the black and African American community which seemingly has a less than supporting appreciation for breastfeeding and especially for breastfeeding in public. The CDC also reports that African Americans are less likely to breastfeed their children. 





The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies reports that Blacks stop breastfeeding sooner than other races, setting up their children for higher incidences of illnesses and diseases that non-breastfed children succumb to at a higher rate than those who were nursed.

The report also links higher rates of infant mortality and low birth weight to lack of breastfeeding.

There is a taboo about it among the black community, perhaps, and those who nurse for too long are not encouraged  or supported and are sometimes egged on to stop breastfeeding after a few weeks or months. Although to be fair, shorter breastfeeding times are also linked to low income mothers who have to report to work earlier and have shorter maternity leave and/or work in settings where they do not have a private place to pump and store their milk for their babies.
Kim Durdin-James, national president of the African-American Breastfeeding Alliance (AABA), summed it up well in saying, “In the best of times, breastfeeding is the optimal feeding choice for young children because it provides babies with all vital nutrients for growth and development, but in times of disaster, breastfeeding can mean the difference between life and death.”

Then there are those who bashed Nicole specifically because she was not wed to her baby’s father. Some said that Gisele Bunchen didn’t get the same amount of backlash because she was married when she shared  a similar photo last November.

But Bundchen wasn’t the first.

Xena the Warrior Princess actress and model Lucy Lawless who was photographed (above) for World Breastfeeding Week in 2002.

Singer P!nk  shared a photo of herself breastfeeding via her Instagram account, although she has since deleted the image.

Australian Model Miranda Kerr tweeted a photo of herself in 2011 breastfeeding her daughter in between costume changes during a photo shoot on her personal blog, which is currently taking a hiatus.

It shouldn’t matter if she’s married or not, a model or an actress, sharing a natural  act shouldn’t be shamed or shunned. Whether it is considered oversharing or too private for Instagram or not is up for debate and up to the individual person sharing.

We say kudos to them if destigmatizing it will eventually make it less unpopular among some groups.

Keep on brave women.
